Syria is not interested in real peace. It is putting on a show to get more onside with the USA and come further down from its rogue classification. It is a straw man argument to suggest that Israel is driving Syria into Iran's hands. As the ayatollah has proclaimed .The regional powers are looking for a way to wipe Israel off the map. For that misstep.It would be a misstep to jump the gun on giving back the Golan. Only when Israel is truly accepted in the region by both arabs and iranians. And they don't going around blythely denying the holocaust and Israel's right to exist could such a move get a serious look. In the meantime the best thing to do is continue low level discussions.
